Prediction Astros vs. MLB Rays | 09/21/2022 | Soccer Betting

This Wednesday will come to an end this series between the Houston Astros and the Tampa Bay Rayswhich is taking place at Tropicana Field, home of the Rays.


Despite their locality, the Rays have not been able to keep up with the pitching of the Astros and have been defeated in the first two games, so now they will seek to avoid what would be a painful defeat.

the season of the stars It has been simply sensational, being one of the most consistent teams in the MLB, and arriving here with the best record in the entire American League with 98 wins and 51 losses, which has allowed them to once again secure the Western Division pennant. The Astros are currently the second best team in pitching in the league, allowing an average of 3.24 runs per game, and leaving an ERA. collective of 2.92.

Precisely that great performance on the pitch has been the main ally of the Astros in this series, given that they won the first match 4-0, and took yesterday’s game by another 5-0 shutout, thanks to a very good performance by a Christian Xavier who allowed only 1 hit in 5.0 innings of work. For this opportunity, the Astros will send to the mound Lance McCullers Jr. who has performed well since returning from his lengthy injury, allowing two runs or fewer in five of his six starts, and is coming off 6.0 innings of just 2 hits and 11 strikeouts against the A’s.

According to Sportium, the odds for the Astros to win are:



Although the season of rays It hasn’t been bad at all, a record of 82 wins and 66 wins in a tough American League West Division has only served to keep him in third place in his zone, and occupy the second wild card spot in his league. The Rays have performed well on the mound this season, averaging 3.79 runs allowed, but they’ve been a bit lacking on offense, leaving an average of 4.26 runs scored.

Those shortcomings have been more than evident in this series, where they haven’t even been able to score a run, losing for now by a combined score of 9-0, after just registering 3 hits last night. For this game, the Rays will have as starter Corey Kluberwho has had his good moments this year, but comes off two poor starts, in which he had 10 runs allowed in just 6 1/3 innings.

According to Sportium, in MLB betting the odds for the victory of the Rays is:


While the Houston Astros don’t usually put on great offensive displays, they’ve shown they know how to produce consistently all season, so hopefully he can hurt a Kluber who isn’t at his best. Plus, I’m also confident that McCullers will be able to continue his momentum against a Rays offense that has been really bad this series.

Therefore, I expect this game to follow the trend of the first two, with the Astros dominating things with their pitching and opportunistic hitting, thus taking the win.
